Commercial & Residential Real Estate
Purchasing real estate or buying a business can be an exciting time, but it can also be confusing. Buying a house, property, or a business is a legal area that’s fraught with peril for both buyers and sellers.
Our job as Commercial and Residential Real Estate Lawyers in Kamloops is to make sure you know what you’re agreeing to before you sign anything. Then, on the closing date, we make sure that you really own the property, you paid the right amount for it, and all the paperwork is complete and correct. We’ll check that the person selling you the property has a right to sell it and that no one else has a claim to it, such as mortgage holders, unpaid contractors, tenants, and the spouse of the person selling the house.
We’ll contact the municipality or regional district to make sure that the property does not violate any by-laws and that all taxes have been paid. We’ll also investigate any special restrictions on the property such as access by others to the property. For those purchasing with someone else, we even explain the difference between being joint tenants or tenants in common.
Our Real Estate Lawyers will advise you on title, mortgages and encumbrances. All documents are carefully reviewed and discussed with you. We also handle mortgages, subdivisions and foreclosures. If you are involved with building or development, we offer a full range of services to assist you.
Our Real Estate lawyers have years of experience in residential, commercial and agricultural transactions, buying and selling, financing, mortgages and personal property security, leasing, environmental concerns, and the brokering and marketing of businesses and commercial properties.
